Awful news, thought of him as my on screen big brother, even though he was old enough to be my dad.

 

Scrolling through, looks reliable. The links to folk and history over time seem to confirm the accuracy.

Linda Robson struggling to sleep , exhibiting erratic behaviour and the police have been called twice to her home. That usually means psychosis, mental health problems or dementia is starting to show its effects. Could be one to keep at eye on for 2020.

Meant to mention, chanced on an episode of Dad's Army last week in which the platoon were clearly performing a morris dance

 

Only mention this because Ian Lavender remains alive and the HPDP remains a going concern

 

Series 7 episode 4 "The Godiva Affair" if anyone's that bothered about investigating

Not to forget the Vicar, Frank Williams,  is still going, now 88.

Oh aye, 

 

I was channel hopping incidentally, only saw a few seconds of the platoon morris dancing, fairly sure the vicar wasn't jigging about with bells on his knees. No bonus points to be had unless Frank Williams wandered into shot in a porno once over.

Pauline Qurike seems to have been quiet recently - no projects for a couple of years and her acting school website is all about her legacy.

I notice there is a discrepancy in his age. Some sources are saying he was 76, while others are listing  his lifespan as 1952-2020.

sad news.I always remember him from The Liver Birds and of course the voice of Thomas the Tank Engine. I doubt he was only 68 because he played Lucien in the Liver Birds way back in 1975 !

Posted in this thread because he was originally our Lucien in The Liver Birds.

 

Also memorable in Boys from the Blackstuff.

I think his brother Paul (Yellow Submarine) is 76.

Happy with this thread, though Blackstuff is what I most remember him from. Tough watch for a young teen.

 

I will miss him.
